    I understand that that animal protein can cause insulin resistance. But I don't understand then how some people are using ketosis to reverse diabetes. I understand it is unhealthy, but I was trying to understand why it can work for some people despite the negative problems that come with it. I have known people who say they reduced or got rid of their resistance through ketosis. But I don't understand how that happens.


    Hi Denise,

    As a Type-1 diabetic and a fault analysis engineer obsessed with the mechanics of diabetes, I can say from first-hand experience that ketosis does not and cannot cure or improve diabetes. The confusion is in the definition. The general definition of diabetes is the condition of elevated blood-sugar. But that definition is over simplified, ignoring the mechanics of the condition. In my opinion, diabetes is anytime the metabolic system is compromised to where its response timing is too slow. This means that if one's blood-sugar spikes after eating anything; white potato, white rice, cup of cake frosting, sugar drink - anything - then, in my opinion, that is diabetes. Ketosis makes one's blood-sugar numbers look good only because the system is in an extreme state of glucose starvation; not because of a healthy metabolic system. So, the appearance of ketosis curing or improving diabetes is a false indication. Blood-sugar numbers can be good even with extreme insulin resistance.
    It may also be good to understand that ketones are extremely toxic. You can buy ketones at Home Depot. It is an industrial organic solvent and is labeled extremely poisonous. It may be argued that that is a different ketone, but - it works the same way in one's body. It is a solvent damaging and dissolving fat, muscle, organ tissue, etc., etc., etc. - it's some really bad stuff.
